Are crochet skirts a good project for beginners?

Crochet skirts might look complex, but many are beginner-friendly. In fact, a skirt pattern can be a great first garment project. If you’re new to crocheting garments, choose a pattern with simple stitches, minimal shaping, and a looser fit.

A few great beginner skirt patterns from this list include the Crochet Skirt (#3) Sagebrush Skirt (#10), Solveig Skirt (#12), and Lana Pencil Skirt (#20).

Supplies Needed for Crochet Skirts

Here are some supplies you’ll need to make your crochet skirt.

  • Yarn
  • Crochet hook(s)
  • Other notions (scissors, stitch markers, tapestry needle, elastic, buttons, etc.)

What type of yarn is best for crochet skirts?

There are a lot of choices when it comes to yarn for crochet skirts. Here are some things to consider when shopping:

Yarn weight:  In general, thinner yarns help to create more flowy skirts that drape well, and don’t feel too bulky. Think worsted, DK, or even fingering weight.

Fiber content: Another factor to consider is fiber content. Choose something light and airy for summer skirts, like linen or cotton blends. For the colder months, consider wool or acrylic. 

Durability: Regardless of the yarn weight and material, it’s a good idea to pick something durable and washable. Because you will sit on your skirt, it will likely get more wear and tear than a shirt or cardigan.

Crochet Techniques for Skirt Patterns

Wondering if you’re ready to take on a skirt? Here are some of the techniques you might need to know. Before getting started on your pattern, be sure to read through the stitches that are required and practice any that you’re not familiar with.

Tips and Tricks for Making Crochet Skirts

Choose the right pattern for your skill level.

It’s no fun to get halfway through a pattern and realize it’s over your head. When you find a skirt you love, check the suggested skill level and read through the pattern before getting started. If there are any new stitches involved, get some practice in before starting your skirt. Or, keep looking! There are so many adorable patterns to choose from!

Measure for the proper fit

Most skirt patterns come in multiple sizes. However, instead of just choosing the size you usually wear (for example, medium), it’s a good idea to take measurements to get the best fit. Get out your tape measure and take accurate body measurements to choose the best size for you. You can also adjust as you go by adding or subtracting stitches or rows. That’s the beauty of making your own garments!

Make a gauge swatch.

Lastly, make a gauge swatch before you start your pattern. Without this important step, sadly, your accurate measurements won’t even count! Check your gauge, and size your hook up or down accordingly before jumping in.
